Wilton to Buy Land Near Town Hall

WILTON – At its first monthly meeting of 2018, the Wilton Town Board approved a measure to purchase Traver Road property in case future plans develop to expand the town complex.

The resolution authorized a purchase price of $160,000 for the parcel at 15 Traver Road owned by Martha Kilburn, stating the land will be used “for town purposes.” Last year, the same property had been assessed at an amount totaling $8,000 more. 

Town Clerk Sue Baldwin indicated that the board has no current plans for any specific use.

Wilton officials are reviewing plans to build a new Town Court and expand a portion of Town Hall at 22 Traver Road.

A new facility for Wilton seniors also is planned for town property on Northern Pines Road, following a demolition of the existing structure named after Lillian W. Worth.
